      Hey, whether intentionally or no (and taken within the context of this thread), you're essentially suggesting that poor people are poor because they are stupid (and I won't even get into the further...

      My '93 Volvo has a dealer sticker on the door jamb saying the airbag and belt tensioners were replaced in 2003 per Volvo recommendations. Apparently the airbag deployed flawlessly when my brother...

      My brother and I almost bought a $900 one probably 12-13 years ago. I remember specifically the massive greenhouse and the horizon indicator on the dash with angle warning buzzer! The back was rotted...

      That's a pretty interesting take on what usually looks like this:

      I wouldn't necessarily trust those as accurate readings of the actual pressures: those Harbor Freight testers are pretty junky. That said it looks like 1 and 5 are definitely down on compression...

      I feel like I do this in every wagon thread, but if you're already considering the 240, why not consider a 7/940 7/960? They are much more modern feeling and comfortable than the 240 and every bit as...

      Yeah that seems like a clean example. And I really think the cloth seats are the way to go in the 7/900's as the leather ones (when not cared for) crack and pull apart at the seams. The cloth seems...

      They actually made the 940 up to 1995 and the 960 (as the S/V90) until 1998, though that had the whiteblock I6.

      You will spend the majority of your time in this car commuting to work or sitting at traffic lights or running over to the post office before they close because you forgot to put that important form...

      Volvos of the era are pretty similar though I would rather be in a 7/900 10 times out of 10 because they're more comfortable, have way better interiors, and are nicer to drive. That said, the...

      Imagine a hypothetical world where everyone gets an education/skillset that is deserving of a reasonable wage; is that a coherent world? Or is it more coherent to say that if you work full-time then...

      You know, he's right. If you purchase a car in this country from a private party you shouldn't be required to title, register, or insure it. Nor should you need to have proof that you have received...

      Youtube is full of videos of people chopping FRAMs in half and comparing the filter elements to other brands. They are made cheaply. It's not a motor killer or anything that I've ever heard of but...

      Question: So I know the whole "grass is greener" thing cuts both ways and that Euros definitely covet US stuff in the same way that people over here covet Euro and Japanese cars and equipment. Is it...

      I've only had to talk about this if they ask. I've sold a lot of cars (not all of them for a profit, either) and I don't know that I've been asked more than twice why I'm selling it.
